Hochtief wins $180m upgrade of Australian air base
Hochtief subsidiary CPB Contractors has won a contract with the Australian Department of Defence to build a maintenance facility for C‐17A aircraft at Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Base Amberley in Queensland.
The contract also includes an aircraft apron and associated infrastructure at the base, which is located 40km south‐west of Brisbane on the outskirts of Ipswich.
The contract will generate revenue to CPB Contractors of approximately AU$180m (£108m). CPB Contractors managing director Román Garrido said: “The C‐17A project is significant in that it will upgrade aircraft fleet facilities to world‐class standard and improve the engineering and maintenance operations at the RAAF’s largest base in Australia.”
As managing contractor, CPB Contractors will deliver a new maintenance facility, aircraft apron and associated airfield infrastructure and ground support equipment facilities.
Construction is scheduled to begin in February 2017 and conclude in October 2018.
